Popcorn Sweater and Musings on my Wardrobe

I finished my new popcorn sweater last night - I haven’t blocked it yet, I imagine it will grow a bit in length and width, as washable wools tend to do! I’m very happy and excited to wear it.

I’ve been struggling with my wardrobe since having James. I still really passionately care about sustainable, ethical fashion but my clothing size has changed AGAIN

Black and White Datura Blouse

I finished my first Datura blouse! I made my "wearable muslin" out of scraps from a maxi dress and my Black Swiss Dot Blouse so it's basically like I made this shirt for free (yay!). It's maybe a slight bit too big, but it was hard to tell in the making of it because Deer & Doe patterns don't go up to my size, so I was very much winging it and in many places redrafting it completely. So I will narrow down the shoulder and take in the sides a bit on the next version.
